It's great and the stuff will make the place clean always. However, some of the people doesn't care about the tidy, like the won't clean up their dishes after they had their meal. Some people made noise even in the night. But, overall, it's great.

I had a great experience at YHA, the place was super clean and extremely secure. Facilities are new, the kitchen was huge and lots of space in the bathroom. The staff wasn't too friendly but it's not a big deal. 5-10 minute walk to city centre. Overall I had a wonderful stay, would definitely recommend!

Slight walk from town centre but not too far. The rooms on the second floor are no good for this season. You can feel the temperature drop as soon as you walk up stairs towards the rooms, the hall way is freezing and also the room. The small blow heater on the wall isn't sufficient enough to heat full room. However we booked extra night and were put on 1st floor which seem new. Room was great also had a heater, lockers in room power plugs and lights at each bed it was much better.

Great view of Lake Wanaka and mountains in the communal area. Loved the cosy warm fine and as always with YHA really good kitchen and bathroom facilities. Room was a bit cold though.

Great place to stay in Q-town, just a bit of a hike to town from where it is located. But not bad at all. Staff quite nice and helpful, good wifi, and huge kitchen so great place to stay!

It did have wifi unlike hostel world suggested. It had an amazing view right on the lake too. Ten minutes walk from the town centre but very picturesque

One of the best hostels I've stayed in. Seems pretty new, great facilities. Light and power point on each bed, lockers in the room, extremely well equipped kitchen, nice bathrooms. Very clean and a fabulous location on the lakefront. It is a 10 minute walk to the centre of Queenstown but if you prefer it a bit quieter, it's perfect. Only downside is wifi connectivity - a bit temperamental.

Careful with your food, someone stole $40 worth of food from someone I was traveling with, the bag was in the fridge with her name on it and they just took it. Otherwise the place was amazing, great space, nice bedding, and bathrooms.
